1954 Commercial for Chesterfield

Published 1954

This is a really BAD 1954 commercial for Chesterfield Cigarettes. Compared to the Lucky Strike ads of the same period, this commercial stinks. I advise everybody to NOT download this commercial. As you probably already know, this is taken from the opening of a fine episode of "The Perry Como Show", which can also be downloaded from the Internet Archive.

Run time 42 seconds
Audio/Visual sound, black and white

It's not an assault on the senses or anything, but this commercial does indeed appear to have been made in a hurry by people new to the business. I found the uploader's comments to be the funniest part of the whole experience, though.
